Auto allegiance

Apparently, or so they say, way back when, like the 1970s, people could actually distinguish between different models and makes of automobiles. A Chevy was a Chevy and a Ford, a Ford, etc. Today all cars look virtually alike; they have rounded bodies, boring colors and meaningless names. Yet people still claim allegiance to particular manufacturers — as witnessed by the alarming number of vehicles displaying stickers of Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbes fame) peeing on rival manufacturer’s logos. If you are one of these die-hards, or are related to one, may be worth a look. Here you can also find watches emblazoned with car logos so a person can always see it is Chevy Time — or was that Dodge?
